    1. 1. Meaningful HomeworkFlipped, Interactive, Autograded
    2. 2. Why and How Homework?Why give it?How do we design it?How do we make it something they want to do?
    3. 3. Typical Beliefs aboutHomeworkServes to extend learning beyond classroomHomework teaches responsibility (or obedience?)Lots of homework is consistent with rigorous programGood teachers give HW and good students do it
    4. 4. What the Research Says?Amount of time spent on homework is positivelycorrelated to achievementHomework appears to be more effective for olderstudents (15+)As more variables are controlled for, + correlation isdiminishedThere appears to be an optimum amount of HW ateach grade level – 10min/year
    5. 5. Tenets of LearningQuality teaching mattersSkills require practiceTime on task matters (we might need to redefine the tasks )Quality of task is as important as timeLearning is individualChildren differ in readiness and developmental levelChildren differ in learning styles (myth)Children differ in motivation, persistence, and organizational skills (executivefunction)Frustration is detrimental to motivation and desire to learnHomework that is not completed does not help learning
    6. 6. • Children differ in motivation, persistence, andorganizational skills (executive function)
    7. 7. • Frustration is detrimental to motivation and desireto learn
    8. 8. What about Grading?Once the number isattached the learningstopsGrade should reflectlearning not behavior
    9. 9. We mustask:Why don’t they do theirhomework?What is the effect on futurelearning?How do I meet the needs ofindividual learners?THERE AREN’T EASYANSWERS!

    12. 12. Consider HW as Formative AssessmentFeedback over GradingFormative•‘… often means no more than that theassessment is carried out frequentlyand is planned at the same time asteaching.’ (Black and Wiliam, 1999)•‘… provides feedback which leads tostudents recognizing the (learning)gap and closing it … it is forwardlooking …’ (Harlen, 1998)•‘ … includes both feedback and self-monitoring.’ (Sadler, 1989)•‘… is used essentially to feed backinto the teaching and learningprocess.’ (Tunstall and Gipps, 1996)Summative•‘…assessment (that) has increasinglybeen used to sum up learning…’(Blackand Wiliam, 1999)•‘… looks at past achievements … addsprocedures or tests to existing work ...involves only marking and feedbackgrades to student … is separated fromteaching … is carried out at intervalswhen achievement has to besummarized and reported.’ (Harlen,1998)
    13. 13. Black and Wiliam•Frequent short tests are better than infrequent longones.•New learning should be tested within about a week offirst exposure.•Be mindful of the quality of test items and work withother teachers and outside sources to collect good ones.•Comments alone have more impact on studentachievement than comments and grades or gradesonly.For more:
